Is it possible to remove the # symbol from angular.js urls? I still want to be able to use the browser’s back button etc when i change the view and will update the url with params, but I don’t want the # symbol. The tutorial routprovider is declared as follows angular.module('phonecat', []). config(['$routeProvider', function($routeProvider) { $routeProvider. when('/phones', {templateUrl: 'partials/phone-list.html', controller: PhoneListCtrl}). when('/phones/:phoneId', {templateUrl: 'partials/phone-detail.html', controller: PhoneDetailCtrl}). otherwise({redirectTo: '/phones'}); }]); can I edit this to have the same functionality without the #?
